FREE Tracking Tools

Posted On 8:12 PM by Keeven |

Keep track of how much weight you are losing with a weight loss tracking chart is a a significant step. There is nothing more motivating than seeing your results thus far in black and white.

There are tonnes of benefits to be gained from a weight loss tracking chart. Firstly it is the best way to see your results and how you are progressing with the diet and exercise. Secondly you can monitor how much you are losing each week or each month - see what works, what doesn’t. I don't believe in weighing yourself more than once a week if you are trying to lose weight. Try to pay attention to which of your meals really satisfies your hunger, what times of day (or days) that you are particularly vulnerable to hunger or poor meal choices so that you can plan better, and try to identify small diet or exercise changes that you can make on an ongoing basis to continue losing weight.

Another benefit is you can check whether your weight loss system is useful enough for achieving your short term and long term weight loss goals. Here I have included some tools,software and programs that you can use which I recommend you do cause it will definitely assist you.

Basal Metabolic Rate Calculator
BMR is the total number of calories your body requires for normal bodily functions (excluding activity factors). This includes keeping your heart beating, inhaling and exhaling air, digesting food, making new blood cells, maintaining your body temperature and every other metabolic process in your body. In other words, your BMR is all the energy used for the basic processes of life itself. It is very important to note that the higher your lean body mass is, the higher your BMR will be. This is very significant if you want to lose body fat because it means that the more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn. Muscle is metabolically active tissue, and it requires a great deal of energy just to sustain it.
